A great snippet. Mountains of the Moon here is the highlight for me, despite iffy quality (think 12/7 Rosemary-hiss), but it's still awesome to hear any little '68 gems that have flown under the radar.

I was at this concert
I'd like to share my memories of this show. There were a lot of great bands at this concert...Spirit, Comfortable Chair...and Country Joe & The Fish, besides the Grateful Dead. I remember the Grateful Dead didn't play all that long. It was a fun, old time, original rock festival type concert. Everyone sat on the floor, there weren't any seats. Everyone was real friendly. The spirit of peace and love was everywhere. Long hair was still fairly new and it was fun to walk around showing off your long hair, and look at everyone else's, and everyone had on the colorful clothes of that era. Plus, it was just a few days before Christmas. I remember Randy California, of Spirit, worked one of the Christmas Carols into one of his guitar solos. They had different stages set up, so while one band was playing, another one was getting ready, so there was only a short break between bands. And you'd turn and face one band and then the other. I remember Jerry's solos involved a lot of going up and down the neck, in a rather fluid manner. When I listen to the playback, I see what I was remembering. I think he was playing his SG. It was a great concert, and Country Joe & The Fish came out and closed the show. They were great, too! It was fun seeing Pigpen, too! I remember driving home after the show. We were all feeling great. We took surface streets, instead of the freeway, so we could travel at a nice comfortable speed and enjoy the good feelings. There wasn't much traffic, and the lights along the street, were all shining in a line, lighting up what appeared to be a bright road to the future.

The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" December 20, 1968 at the Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles, CA, U.S.A.
This show is a "Must Have" for all us Pigpen fans. "Turn On Your Lovelight" is classic 68 Pigpen, enjoy.
This copy sounds better than the other copy of this show on the IA.
I am giving this show 5 stars because it's 41 years old. It's a miracle it's survived this long and came in contact with Mr. Charlie Miller.

Instruments and vocals come through loud, but not clear, because of a background hiss. Jerry does some great acoustic guitar jamming at the end of Mountains of the Moon.
